The 2019-20 National League Steps 1 & 2 conclusion has been ratified by Council

The FA Council has ratified both the National League’s proposal on concluding the 2019-20 season at Steps 1 and 2 of the National League System [NLS] and the required amendments to the NLS Regulations and Standardised Rules for it to become effective.

The ratification follows a recommendation from our Alliance Leagues Committee and allows the National League to: rank clubs on a points per game basis; apply the automatic promotion and relegation based on the position of clubs on that basis; and proceed with play-off matches in accordance with the Government’s return to domestic competition guidance.
